“Designers brought back the oversized blazer but revamped the trend with extremely bold shoulders,” Pritchard said.

While this look might seem like a tough piece to wear for some, she said it’s actually more versatile than you might think.

Stylist tip: Pair this look with slim bases to balance out the extreme proportions. A rule of thumb to follow: If an oversized garment takes up half your body, keep it slim on the other half.

Another tip is to try heading to the men’s section for a huge assortment of oversized blazers instead of spending big bucks on some of this season’s latest women’s designer picks.

Pritchard also recommends adding extra shoulder pads to give the shoulder extra height.
